With digitization most of the paper work and information has gone digital and with the vast amount of information Document Review Services are becoming an essentiality in the area of electronic discovery. Even by the US Federal Rules of Civil Procedure FRCP 26(f), discovery plan has become a necessity. Under this federal rule, the parties involved in the case have to decide a recourse for reviewing and producing the relevant information stored electronically.
